Exceptional Quality from Start to Finish

Our value is even more impressive when you consider our quality. You will stay aboard our award-winning rivers ships, deluxe small ships, and in 4- and 5-star hotels that provide all the amenities your family prefers. It may be an historic castle, a landmark urban hotel that’s an attraction in and of itself, or a deluxe wilderness lodge. Wherever possible your lodgings will offer free Wi-Fi and a pool. And it will always be centrally located or set right where we’ll be exploring, so you never waste time commuting, and can make the most of every precious moment.

Varied activities, cuisine, and entertainment for all ages

Maybe your dad is on a low-fat diet. Perhaps your sporty teens need to expend some energy. Or maybe you want to be sure there's something for your brother the history buff, or your sisters who are kitchen wizards. Not to worry, we have plenty of ways to satisfy a variety of tastes and multigenerational interests. It might be a hands-on crafts lesson, a pick-up soccer match, a cooking class, family movie night, or a kids-only interactive game tournament.

As for dining, your included meals reflect the best of regional cuisine as well as American favorites—served aboard ships, in hotels, local restaurants, even in family homes. There are always choices for the health-conscious (or just the picky eaters), and with advance notice we are happy to accommodate any special dietary needs.

Always in Good Hands….

Travel safe and sound with a dedicated Vantage guide who is a resident of the region, and can show it to you as only an insider can. He or she will be your translator, team leader, teacher and friend, ready to tell you the back story about an historic sight … explain regional customs … organize outings for the kids … introduce you to local friends … and open cultural doors that might otherwise remain closed. Then there's the pure luxury of having someone manage the logistics—hotel check-ins, travel timetables, museum admissions and more—so your experience is truly carefree. Leave the details to us while you focus on each other, and the wonders all around you.

Always in Good Company!

Vantage Family Adventure Trip Leaders are men and women with families of their own who know first-hand how to facilitate positive group dynamics that enrich everyone. Your Adventure Leader will introduce your family to the others in your group, and set the tone for the good times you’ll all share. Everyone in your family, young and old, may come home with new lifelong friends!
